    Decent hotel in PP close to nightlife/shopping

    Never been before but with Chiang Mai going down the shitter I'm considering a week or two in PP over New Year.

    Ideally I want a nice hotel near the action so I don't have far to stumble home pissed. (By nice, I'm OK with $50-150 a night, although the lower end is preferred just to maximise beer vouchers).

    Walking distance of markets and shopping would be good too.

    Not worried about the tours and stuff because I'm sure a decent hotel will have a tour desk for all that stuff.

    I'm not worried about the food, I rarely make breakfast anyway.

    But good Wifi is a must even if they charge for it.

    And not too noisy, obviously.

    I rarely bother if I'm pissed, but if I do succumb to the temptation, the ability to bring a "language instructor" home would be good, too.

    Your kind consideration is deeply appreciated.

    Town View Hotel Phnom Penh

    Stayed here a few days in the executive suite which is 2 rooms joined together. Very convenient and only $75 a night or around that. French chicken place across the road is brilliant.

    Just my own opinion but I like these two.. Bougainvillier on the Riverside and Golden House International right in the heart of Street 136. It is very hard to beat for position and quality for the price.. So out of the two I posted Golden is my choice.

    Bougainvillier is more pricey, but you get what you pay for and it is very good and short walk to all the action/nightlife/cafes..

    Cheers

    The action is on the Riverside, roads off Sisowath Quay ("beach road"), and on around Street 51 Pontoon / HOD, Sorya "Walkabout" area, latter is closer to markets (speaking about Phsar Thmey. Well there's fruit and veg and fish wet market closer to River, Phsar Kandal, but I don't think you want that ).

    Middle option to reach both areas could be Asia Tune Hotel, modern real hotel (not affiliated with AirAsia's Tune Hotels), good value but to get to the Riverside you'll need to cross some areas that have no street lights (or didn't have?), and Norodom blvd. You could always take tuk tuk or motodop USD1, or less like 2-3k riel if you appear like expat, USD2-whatever if you look drunk stoned or if it is raining.

    Closer to 51 and closer to Riverside many hotels have really, really bad rooms, that is windowless coffins. From Asia Tune its 5 min walk to barang food street, Mexican, Kebabs, English...

    True, Golden House is good and have good rooms and location is great for Riverside, but they too have some windowless coffin rooms as well, most resembing some mildly upgraded concentration camp. Once upon a time, online booking, lasted 3 mins there then went down to speak with them and was upgraded to highest floor which then was very nice. Totally relaxed and no problems with, them travel guides and language instructors joining should you like to learn Khmer. Every hotel on this street lives off that. It's a nice location to go for a morning run on Tonle Sap.

    Word to the wise... Golden House has killer stairs, from street level, ok you can crawl them up like in Angkor Wat, but coming down... carelessly walking out in drunken haze might result in broken neck...

    There's also Ohana hotel very near the river on 148 too, cheaper rooms a bit tired, better rooms very good, again a real hotel with good rooms within your 50-150 budget. Could be a good idea to see the room first whatever you choose. You won't be left without a room in PP.

    Sugar opposite Ohana has very nice instructors.

    I go to PP all the time and know the hotel scene pretty well. If you really want to spend $50+ and will be fucking around 136 and 104, Get the $55 suite at Lux or something similar at Riverside Suites (if you don't want the bars right in your face). For $35 or so, I like Le Grande Mekong around the corner. Asia Tune is OK, but a bit far from the mongering areas. It's close to 172 though, where there's lots restaurants. They're cheapest on Cheap Tickets $30 or so. Monsoon on 130 is pretty good, well located, and about $25. There's a bunch of new high end joints a couple kms away for $50 or less, but inconvenient for walking to anyplace. ps: I just stayed at a place called Vacation Boutique Hotel. Brand new and pretty nice. It's on 136 and Norodam. Maybe 5 blocks from the nightlife and 3 from the Central Market. It is a steal at $25.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the Cadillac Bar and restaurant now has a couple apts above right on the River. It's called Riverview Suites and they're huge, like 130sqm for $50-60. They look like a better deal that the two I mentioned earlier Lux and Riverside. Look on Agoda/Booking.com.

    Must be good as one is full and the other only has shitty rooms left.

    I got a Superior Double at the Town View for $47 a night, so that's that done and dusted.

    It's a research trip, so I have plenty of time to stroll around and look at other options if the place is entertaining enough to make me want to go back.

    Thanks for your advice gentlemen.

    Shocking to know that a stalwart TD member and someone we thought was a clean young lad should be indulging in third world sleaze.

    Damn, I wish I was going there.

    Very happily married though, with not the slightest possibility of STDs. And that is a great weight off the mind...

    I am sure the bold Harry will share his sexcapades upon his return.

    It will be so exciting to hear his tales of cheap and meaningless sex with illiterate whores.
    The stories will hold my interest for about as long as his performance.

    Judging your choice of crib, it seems that you don't need to get laid. Try Rehabb bar on 178 on the other side of Norodam. It's a nice higher end bar with decent Thai food. Tell Natalie that Jack sent you.

    To be honest spending time with babbling strumpets isn't high on my list. So don't be too surprised if you hear nought.

    In fact if it's that kind of place I may need to pack this.

    Corner bar in street 136. You can't miss it. Great atmosphere and it is a popular Expat meeting pub. It's on the corner diagonally across and down a bit from Golden House hotel. You will always find someone there who will be happy to steer you in the right direction. The tuk tuk driver who always parks his tuk tuk across the road is an ok guy also. He took me around a bit to the killing fields and a wildlife sanctuary out in the Country. I found the place safe but the beggars get on your nerves a bit. Cheers

    I wish. Unlike the rest of my deptors, she would pay me back. Val's hot, smart, is a good cook, and fun. It's just the best place near your hotel.
